Parking slim as shoppers swarm Charlotte Premium Outlets

Shoppers found themselves circling the lots at Charlotte Premium Outlets as parking filled to capacity on Black Friday.

“We had to park all the way at Zaxby’s,” Erica Chriboga said. “We drove around for about 30 to 45 minutes, and it was madness.”
Tow trucks were on site, looking for those who parked illegally as well.

“They were parked everywhere,” Ann Lammers said. “We went through the lot numerous times, all the way around.”
The Eyewitness News crew spotted vehicles parked on the edge of the curb.
Nekeva Walters works at Premium Outlets and was forced to leave her car at the curb.

“I mean, I had nowhere else to park,” she said.

Officials at Premium Outlets said this is a great problem to have, and they expect even larger crowds Saturday and advise shoppers to be patient.
